SD card not being read

Recommended Posts

Hi

My Ultimaker 2 randomly started not showing any files on the sd card about a week ago. It didn't come up with the no files message, just didn't have anything listed. I pressed the button and it showed a file name and said it was printing it but didn't heat up the nozzle or bed beforehand. Over the past week I've managed to deal with the problem by simply emptying my sd card and reloading the files onto it and it seemed to work fine, except when I tried to load a new file onto the sd card. Then the whole problem would start again. I tried it with 5 different sd cards, I reformatted all of them but it didn't solve the problem. Now however, it won't show any files, no matter how many times I empty the sd card.

I rely on my printer for my business. I teach children how to use and design for 3D printers, it doesn't have the same appeal to the kids when the can't actually use the 3D printer. Please help!

Ive had this issue,Are you using a Mac? My problem was when ejecting the SD card from the Mac,Some how the card got corrupted and would cause my UM to go nuts on some prints and even stop in the middle of a print. This was happening to files that I had successfully printed a number of times before. I filed a bug report with Apple and they found the issue and said it should be fixed.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
